Fungus In The Uterus.?
Tonight, Doc whether ultrasound can detect the presence of fungus in the uterus? Because my sister just wanted to promil and check with the midwife on ultrasound she said there was fungus in her womb. Is the fungus dangerous? thank you
Hello Eni, thank you for asking.
Ultrasound has indeed become one of the routine checks for women who are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant. Its function is to assess the condition of the uterus, ovaries and related reproductive tract, is there any deformity or abnormal growth. Ultrasound results may indicate suspicion of an inflammatory process due to infection in the uterus. However, so far, ultrasound has not been able to definitely detect the type of microorganism that causes the infection.
Infection in the reproductive organs may be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Type of causative microorganisms, known through taking and examining samples in the laboratory. Samples can be in the form of mucus produced by the cervix and vagina, can also be in the form of a complete blood test.
To our knowledge, there is still some debate about the competence of midwives on USG. Some expert opinions state that midwives are allowed to use 2-dimensional ultrasound, if the midwife already has legal training and permission. Midwives can also only do an ultrasound to see if there are abnormalities in the structure of the reproductive organs, or in pregnancy conditions, to assess the position of the fetus, placenta, and amniotic fluid conditions. The diagnosis can only be made by obstetricians and obstetricians.
So, it doesn't hurt for your sister to ask for a second opinion from the obstetrician. Tell in detail and details about the USG results from the midwife. The doctor will probably do a repeat ultrasound, to match the results of the midwife's examination with the doctor's findings at that time.
Thus the brief information that I can give. Hopefully you get information. Regards.
